Using the Howya application

How do I set up my ‘Howya doing’ -notification times in the application?

Open the application and go to settings (located at the left top corner of the screen). Under ‘preferences’ you can choose your morning alarm and evening alarm time. You can also choose the days in which you want the notifications to pop up on your screen.

Why aren’t my ‘Howya doing’ -notifications working? (Android phones)

Check the application settings on your phone. Make sure you have allowed notifications for Howya application and that you have not restricted Howya as a background app on your phone. In most android phones these setting can be checked via: Settings -> Apps -> Manage Apps -> Howya -> Notifications & Battery Saver -> See the two steps below

  1. In Howya app’s notifications management, turn at least ‘Allow notifications’ and then ‘Scheduled notifications’ on. It is recommendable to turn all notification categories on as in the future versions you may get beneficial information through those channels.
  2. In the battery settings for Howya, set the battery use details to ‘Unrestricted’ or turn ‘Allow background activity’ on. You will have one of these two options displayed depending on the Android phone you are using.
